The iRay RICO G-LRF is the first addition to InfiRay Outdoor’s family of Rugged Infrared Compact Optics(RICO) to include an integrated laser rangefinder. Designed as a more compact and affordable alternative to its full-size RICO Mk1 counterpart, the RICO G-LRF is available in two models; 384×288 35mm and 640×512 50mm.
Although smaller in size, the RICO G-LRF still maintains many familiar RICO Mk1 characteristics, including a 4-button layout, compatibility with the AD-RQD quick-release mount, similar software style and menu functions, high-speed germanium objective optics, and an HD OLED display. In addition to the features it carries over from the Mk1, the G-LRF brings never-before-seen features to market for InfiRay Outdoor, including a new high-density 26650 battery configuration and InfiRay Outdoor’s newly integrated high-performance 905nm LRF micro-module.
This advanced class, 3R LRF module, uses the latest technology in laser ranging to decrease physical laser input receiver size while maintaining the accuracy and range capabilities of modules that are much larger, heavier, and more power-hungry.
Other notable design characteristics to achieve the desired smaller stature are a smaller chassis, shorter eyepiece focal length, barrel-style manual focus objective optics, and a high-density battery configuration. These combined features make the iRay RICO G-LRF an excellent option for hunters that need no more than 4(GH50R) or 7(GL35R) hours per battery swap and require decreased size and an integrated rangefinder.
A single 26650 battery was chosen to power the system as a space-saving and high-value alternative to multi-battery designs. 26650 style batteries are commercial off-the-shelf and widely available globally from premium battery manufacturers such as NITECORE.
The iRay RICO G-LRF seamlessly blends InfiRay Outdoor’s industry-leading 12μm detector technology, a built-in laser range-finding module, and an intuitive user interface in a single product. The iRay RICO G-LRF also supports image and video capture, wireless data transmission, an electronic compass, multiple reticles, and a 4-7 hour run-time, guaranteeing it’s never been easier to detect, range, and connect on your next hunt.
